Stricter laws against child molestors.

Messages Sent So Far
The mission is to create stricter laws against child predators whose only intention is to hurt children. This is for first time and repeat offenders. Every year children are victims of kidnappings, violent attacks, sexual abuse, or online predators. Predator statistics show that at least 200 million girls and 100 million boys will be sexually victimized before they reach adulthood. Only 1 in 3 people will report sexual crimes to a trusted adult. Research indicates that 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually abused before adulthood; sadly, 30-40% of these victims are abused by a family member and 50% are abused by someone outside the family whom they know and trust. Yes, there is a sex offender registry with over 747,408 registered sex offenders in the United States, but over 100,000 are lost in the system. These are just a few examples of predator statistics. The law is enacted and enforced on a state-by-state basis. In one year alone, approximately 4,300 child molesters in 15 states were released from confinement. Of the 4,300 child molesters released, approximately 3.3% were rearrested within three years for another sex offense against a child. Do you think it?s time for child molesters/predators/pedophiles to get more time for the crimes they impose on innocent children? More time in prison may save a child from falling victim to a horrific crime. Let?s make a difference! It only takes a few seconds to sign the petition in honor of our children.

Anyone who sexual abuses or extreme physical abuse of children 5 and younger should receive death! These people are animals and unable to be rehabilitated. They should receive death with in one year of sentencing and no repeals if proven guilty beyond any doubt.

They should be castrated and a known mark put on there forehead. Human rights shouldn't apply to them. They prey on the innocent and weak. Maybe open up a huge coal mine and force them to slave labor. We shouldn't supply them with one thing either. **** spending even a penny. They can grow there own food or eat each other. Who cares. A fast death penalty is way to easy for them. They deserve to suffer. The innocent that they victimized have to deal with that for life.
